Frankly, I don't think that any of these qualify as 'ugly' - see what you think...

The photography is fantastic.... I woulda voted for the earwig.... I know they don't nail us but.... they nail my plants so that qualifies as an "ugly bug" in my book.

I think that I may have mentioned before that earwigs are my wife's least favorite insect - she calls them 'widgies'...

I did think that the thumbnails looked cartoonish, but not so much with the full size picture.

The flour beetle looks like it is made out of a burlap bag!
